Abstract

Based on the Biot’s equations for poroelastic media and the decoupling of fast and slow longitudinal waves, the authors obtain the fundamental Green’s functions in the frequency domain for the solid and fluid phases subjected to a buried point load. The numerical results on drained displacement, drained pore pressure and the flux are presented in this paper via Somigliana’s integral and Hankel transformation. As an application, the drained flux due to vibroflotation in ground treatment in saturated soil is discussed in detail. Keywords: drainage, Green’s function, buried point load, saturated soil, dynamic response.
